like drill baby drill. chris joins us with the daily fix. how did that speech work for him today? >> you know, i think what he and his team are trying to do is find a public venue where he is more comfortable. he has been in this race and it has been defined by these four debates that we have had that he has participated in. it's not a good format for him. so i think what they are trying to do is as you said in the opening, push the restart button. give him a place to talk about energy. this is territory where he is somewhat comfortable and give speeches. he is doing more media appearances. i just think they are trying to get that negative perception that this is a falling stock away from him. >> and of course he used a tell prompter. so it all looked good, it played to his virtue. he did the morning shows today and this was matt lauer requesting him about the fact that his wife complained that he was brutalized by his faith. >> isn't it a bit hypocrite call to say you are targeted because of your faith but it was a surrogate for your campaign that introduced it in the first plac

economic committee and joins us now. do you buy that argument? that this jobs bill alone would prevent a double dip? >> i think the president has a lot of really good ideas about how to create jobs and he's responding to the message that i've heard all across pennsylvania. people tell me two things, do something about jobs and work together in a bipartisan way to get it done. i think the president is right to focus on jobs. i think his ideas will have a lot of support in the senate and across the country. and i think he's responding to what i hear all across pennsylvania. >> but you don't think that the size of the jobs bill is enough? where do you come down on whether this is a big enough approach? >> well, i think it's a bill that we can pass if we don't get any republican support, i hope we would, but if we don't and the bill doesn't get the votes we need, we wish it were 51 but the republicans will insist on 60. they could agree to a lower number. if we don't get 60, we have to go back to work. we should start putting one idea per week or one idea every couple of days on the table.

to assassinate the saudi ambassador of the united states here on u.s. soil. the president said we don't take any options off the table in terms of how we operate with iran. seemed to indicate that more sanctions were coming. i want to bring in jamie ruben, a former spokesperson for the state department during the clinton administration. now editor, i think it's. decipher the speak there from the president. >> what he's trying to do is put the pressure f ?hinternational pressure as best as he can on iran. show the level of outrage that the world should feel on these facts. and have his people both at the state department at the united nations security council convincing others of the facts. but once you get to those facts, you envisage a rather dramatic development, that is another government, essentially engaged in a kind of act of violence, if not war against saudi arabia on american soil, with americans potentially dying. so this is a about as serious thing as one could imagine if it took place as it happened here since 9/11. and so the president is going through the facts very carefully. he's

to stand up to front-runner scrutiny. msnbc contributor chris solisa joins us with the fix. tonight's big debate in nevada, herman cain having to explain less than a year ago was quoted on the sales tax saying he was against the sales tax. so now -- he said it was the worst idea, the proposed national sales tax, it's like a v.a.t. like in europe. how does he explain why a 9-9-9 is not a sales tax when he's proposing one? >> i'm interested to hear that tonight, andrea. i think you rightly anticipate he will be asked about it. this is the boom/bust cycle we have seen happen for a lot of conservative campai conservative candidates, michele bachmann, rick perry and now herman cain. you rise on a sense that you are the conservative candidate, you represent the value system. but people don't know that much about you. when they find more out about you, there's doubts that creep in. herman cain has admitted to nbc's david gregory that, yes, in fact the 9-9-9 plan would raise taxes on some individuals. my guest is his rivals will emphasize that tonight. the more you find out, no one is a perfect c

there but they are not. manager editor of post politics.com chris cilliza joins us with the daily fix. do you think there is a play for mitt romney in iowa? could there be a knockout punch against rick perry? >> there's no question there could be a knockout punch. i think there is a classic high risk, high reward situation, andrea. the risk is that mitt romney spent $10 million in iowa in 2007 and 2008. he was there and basically lived there and he was there multiple days doing multiple events every single day in the runup to the caucuses and watched as a guy who didn't spent as much money and didn't have professional organization shot by him because there was some level of distrust towards romney among social conservatives that huckabee took advantage of. the concern is on the romney folks, they look at this polling and recognize if they can win iowa and win new hampshire, the race is probably over. but they don't want to go into that same trap that 2008 trap where they go in in a major way in iowa, he doesn't win because of the same distrust from social conservatives and they he looks weakened he

, mr. sullivan, thanks so much for joining us. let's talk about the debates. was it a mistakes or does he have to be in the debates? >> well, the governor has been in five debates. there have been eight republican debates. i think there's something like 18 more scheduled before the end of january, but it is an opportunity for the governor to talk about his best in the field jobs record, increasingly our jobs plan, mr. harwood mentioned the flat tax probably the governor put out earlier in the week. we're going to be doing more debates, and it is part of the process. >> but the bottom line is he's got to be able to compete. barack obama and hillary clinton had more than 20 debates, and that really ask what toughened up obama and made him the victor for the nomination. doesn't rick perry, especially because he was not as well-known as hadn't run before, doesn't he have to prove he can compete in this arena. >> we have to prove we can compete and win across the board, that means the five debates we've done, the debates we're going to do, as well as working on voters in iowa and new hampsh

moines register poll is joining us now. ann, your poll was giving herman cain a big lift, because even those he's statistically tied with mitt romney, 23-22 in this poll, the leaning is to the herman cain side. >> one thing we asked is who is the candidate you like the least, and with apologies to sarah lee, nobody doesn't like herman cain, according to what we published sunday. he really did have a very nice lift from our poll the last time, and you do have a sense that there's enthusiasm, and i think although overall enthusiasm is lacking, it's still a fluid race. but gosh, things looked good for him yesterday. >> when you look at the numbers, what is the biggest factor in the internals here? the fact that herman cain has such an advantage 27-10 over romney among those who say they are committed caucus goers? >> well, romney's numbers have many underlying vulnerabilities to them, and i think that says a lot about his failure to commit to the state, at least publicly, and do what's going to happen. he seems to have a floor, he seems to have a ceiling in terms of what he can get here.
